debate is the perfect time for it. and speaker of the house john boehner said the consequences of failing to increase the debt ceiling are real but so too are the consequences of allowing our spending problem to go unresolved. the spending and debt issues took most of the president's attention today, but he also turned to the issue of gun violence. after the shootings at an elementary school in newtown connecticut, he appointed vice president biden to come up with recommendations for action. the vice president met with lawmakers today and with groups on both sides of the issue last week. plans to submit proposals by tomorrow. president obama would not discuss specifics today. instead he said this. >> i'm confident that there are some steps that we can take that don't require legislation and that are within my authority as president. and where you get a step that has the opportunity to reduce the possibility of gun violence, then i want to go ahead and take it. >> brown: he conceded that a fight in congress is likely but he hopes that some compromise is is possible. >> the issue here is no
nbc pulled to 23% favorable, 47% unfavorable. the only thing that is worse is john boehner. 18% favorable. this is not a formidable partner. >> over the weekend, politico reported that a lot of house republicans threaten to shut down the government. they need to make shut down in or to get out of the system. we may need to do that for member-management purposes so that they can have an end game and show their constituents they are fighting to get it out of the system? this is not a gastrointestinal problem, this is the government. >> i would suggest therapy and not shutting down the government here that would be the compromise. i would offer it for free, if they really wanted to. the republicans have had a pretty unhappy experience with brinksmanship. twice in the gingrich years they shut down the government and they got shellacked. they tried to force the issue using the debt ceiling in 2011 and using the fiscal cliff in january. i was as gung-ho as any of them to force obama into cutting spending in a government -- the government is spending us into penury. but it failed. the
. >> house speaker john boehner put out a statement on all of this said, quote, house committees of jurisdiction will review these recommendations and if the senate pass as bill, we will also take a look at that. speaker boehner knows that getting 60 votes for any major sweeping new gun control legislation will be difficult to get in the senate. david and liz. david: peter barnes in d.c. thanks, peter. liz: with talks of gun control let's look how some big name gun companies are performing right now. first smith & wesson. this of course is the firearms manufacturer, the stocks saw really significant bump of nearly 6%, putting this into perspective, fallen more than 14% in the wake of shootings at the school. arum ruger and company engages in the design, manufacturing and sale of firearms saw its biggest gain since mid-december. the stock is not hit as hard as smith & wesson. it is up three months for sturm ruger. cabela's operating hundreds of stores in u.s. and canada. it saw a move up 6%. david: not just gun control. we're headed for a debt ceiling battle is to avoid the debt c
area have been waiting for this money. speaker boehner has said it will make it the priority in the next congress. what is the likelihood that it's going to pass? >> reporter: it's very likely that the full $51 billion left on the table will pass by the end of the day, pass the house and go to the president's desk. they have passed 17 of it and the rest will likely come later. there is a but. this is not happening without a pretty significant protest vote that happened a short while ago. a republican amendment that would have offset the spending, $17 billion of the spending with across the board spending cuts. these are pretty steep cuts. if you talk about 17 billion, that's almost the entire agriculture department alone in a year. it really is significant in telling, in the feeling among republicans and it really does illustrate why we are going to have the big fights over the next couple of months to raise the debt ceiling and two-thirds of the republican caucuses voted for this. they want to send a message that they really, really needed it, that they want to cut spending
of speaker boehner in the papers. did he come up with this? who was the driver of the details of this plan? >> i have been trying to track down the exactor begin. there seem to be it shall the exact orie gin. one was the democrat from the south who proposed this a year ago and there was some democratic sponsors to this idea. but what happened at the retreat is it kind of gained some steam, and on the morning of the decision to put this plan out, boehner and cantor and mccarthy met with a group of top influential conserves who gave their blessing to this deal, and that is how it was able to get in place to be announced before people quite expected it. the day before on thursday people were saying no major announcement was going to come out of this. then the next day these conservatives signed on to this. then boom, you had a deal, so to speak. host: what about paul ryan? stories coming out about his being quieter in the background, especially since the election. did he have any say in this or shaping of the policy? >> yes. paul ryan since he's come back to congress from the presidential tra
boehner when he was up for re-election. he is still speaker. what is your advice to him what his strategy should be to deal with the president and actually also get anything done? >> i think if they want to go with a clean debt ceiling race, he has to mike a final resolution. the public, not the republicans, the public wants spending cuts. he needs to go along with sequestration and find ways to cut government, shows that republicans are doing anything. boehner is a survivor, not really a leader. >> we'll have more after this break on the two presidents. what are the president's biggest challenges he faces going into this second term? stay with us. at 1:45, the aflac duck was brought in with multiple lacerations to the wing and a fractured beak. surgery was successful, but he will be in a cast until it is fully healed, possibly several months. so, if the duck isn't able to work, how will he pay for his living expenses? aflac. like his rent and car payments? aflac. what about gas and groceries? aflac. cell phone? aflac, but i doubt he'll be using his phone for quite a while cause like i sa
. president. it's the leadership, look, you might like john boehner, most americans don't know who he is. all right? marco rubio will be on this program tomorrow. a rising star. but doesn't have nearly the status of president obama or the bully pulpit and the press certainly not going to give rubio a break. everything is going the pet's way. i think that's how he feels. that he has got the momentum and he is going to squash the republicans now once and for all during his term. look i think you are right in identifying the two factors. there is one fundamental difference between those two factors, the media, the press, the intellectuals, academia, hollywood, they are always left. they always were. they always will be. that's the sunrising in the east. you have got to live with it despite that we erected a reagan and bush and then a second bush. but the other factor is not constant that's where i think you have got it wrong. you were arguing earlier in the show there was some kind of structural change in the country liberals have a that is simply a function of the fact that the democrats have j
the president. people on the right, people who voted against boehner's plan b and people who want a deal done. i think in the end, people who want a deal done will prevail. maybe at the last hour or three hours after the last hour, we don't know. it was quite obvious the president was trying to blow up the deal on december 31st, while biden and mcconnell were out there negotiating, the president had a pep rally in the east room in which he directly attacked both the congress and the republicans, people trying to do the deal. any who's done any negotiations know what you should have done is praise the process, not attack the people in the middle of the process. i don't think the president liked that deal, i don't think he wanted a deal. i think he'd rather have the issue and i think in this case, he'd also rather have the issue. it will be very very hard to get a serious deal done when one of the main negotiators really doesn't want any deal at all. >> we have evidence of that with this interview with john boehner where he said the president told him repeatedly, we don't have a spending problem,
hill. republican speaker of the house john boehner reacted tepidly, his spokesman putting out a statement saying they will look at the ideas and if the senate passes a bill they will look at that but no commitment to bring a bill to the house floor. >> the president had children around him during the press conference, right is. >> and many of the children were victims of gun violence themselves or were aware of victims of gun violence and wrote letters to the white house. in fact, some of these children wrote letters that the president read from, remarked upon. it was a very dramatic and emotional setting there because the children sort of making the point and reinforcing the president's point that in his view this is about protecting first graders and their rights to go to school safely as much as it is about second amendment rights for gun owners. >> thank you so much. eamon javers with the latest there. >>> boeing dragging down the dow today as yet another problem is grounding some boeing dreamliners. phil lebeau with the latest developments out of boeing. we'll speak with
gun violence but his key proposals need congressional approval. house speaker john boehner is showing no signs of urgency to act on it. the national rifle association was quick to announce its opposition to any firearms ban. >>> u.s. senator dianne feinstein of california will hold a capitol hill news conference with some of her colleagues later this morning. it's to introduce an updated version of the assault weapons banshee authored in 1994. that ban expired in 2004. >>> the colorado movie theater where 12 people were killed last year is re-opening for business today. the renamed and remodeled century aurora will hold a ceremony for victims and officials tonight. police say james holmes opened fire on a crowd watching the latest batman movie in july of last year. aurora's mayor says the community survey showed overwhelming support for re- opening up the theater but some of the victims' family members refused to attend today's ceremonies for obvious reasons. >>> 5:41. from art gallery worker to super sleuth. the stealthy way a woman got
and john boehner. they are the leaders and they are trying to do too much by being both the leader and the spokesman for the party. connell: you want someone who is not an elected official. dagen: ironically enough in williamsburg. connell: you know a lot of people inside the party and i would say you have some influence of writing in the journal's editorial page at least what people are thinking about. is this something that they are considering? >> i think it is something that they should consider. i, frankly, connell, and getting a tremendous e-mail response saying they just want someone to speak for them. a voice that is identifiable and articulate their ideas. they could speak -- the republicans have good policy, but they simply are not being articulated and publicize in a way that the public could be forced to come to grips with. dagen: again, with the use of twitter, how can the republicans take advantage of the kind of rapid fire way because connell and i both, the first thing we look at in the morning is twitter four hour news. republicans seem absent in many ways. are the
to speaker boehner. that will bring the deficits down even further, below 3% as a percentage to our economy. bringing down the debt as percentage to our gdp. critical and important for competence. so he very wants to engage on balanced deficit reduction. what he has said is the following. he cannot tolerate congress deciding to not pay its existing bills. and i mean nobody should use the threat of default, the threat of hurting the full faith and credit of the united states as a bargaining chip in negotiations. if anyone tries to, the president is just not going to tolerate or negotiate or engage with that type of behavior and i think that you're starting to hear an emerging group of outside republicans agreeing with the president, particularly in the business community saying you do not hold the united states economy and its credit rating hostage no matter how much you care about a particular side or point of view in a budget negotiation. >> speaking of which, not a republican necessarily but allen writes in the journal, he says the consequences of hitting the debt ceiling are too awful to
about the congress. speaker boehner said it can't be done unless we cut spending at the same time. having watched this for more than 30 years in congress, what are the odds of avoiding going over the cliff given where both parties are? >> the outside that we won't do it. it's not a matter of faith. it's a matter of consequence. i mean, those who say okay, let's toilet, they are toying with the american economy and with the global economy. and so, i think it is somewhat -- it seems brave to talk about doing that, but the closer you get to that cliff, the less likely it is that your fund the u.s. over it. >> one another in a booklet of brian butler and start. let me ask you about tax reform. he told "politico" last week that a balanced approach are facing sequester with spending cuts and revenue should accelerate tax reform and i believe it's fully possible this year for work on a bipartisan basis, unquote. how does that square with the people who say tax reform is going to lose out because of scheduling and it's asinine anemones sequestering house republicans concern that if they d

boehner promised peter king and other northeast lawmakers that he he would move the bill quickly of after pulling it from the floor at the last minute in the wake of the fiscal cliff vote that saw most republicans vote against the speaker right around new year's day. >> host: so, eric wasson, do they have the votes then for this next round of relief? >> guest: well, the proponents of the bill say they're confident. of course, we'd expect them to say that. but i think most likely they do. they have at least 14 republican lawmakers from the northeast, they probably have all the democrats. they just need to get, you know, some others, and i think most of the appropriations committee, you know, hal rogers is behind this bill, he crafted it. so there's no earmarks and there's no pork. so i think so. i think some of the minor amendments, stripping the couple million dollars stripped out for weather service and other people view as not sandy-related may pass, but i don't think they're viewed as killer amendments in the senate. the key amendment to look will be one from representative mick mulvan
of the senate any good to the presidential leadership and speaker boehner would be supported as long as it came in a way that was structured and you get something done. >> i really agree with that. in a curious way, both sides need each other. why do i say that? a debt limit has to be extended. it has to be. this is not our future spending. this is about spending has already been done. will we pay the bills that we have already racked up? clearly, we have to do that. the consequences of a failure to extend the debt limit would be extraordinary. to do that, you have to get votes of people in the house of representatives. and they are insisting on additional spending restraint. in fact, we need additional spending restraint. if anything is clear from the charts i have put up your is that we have to get some additional restraint on the entitlement side of our budget. so it does lend itself to a compromise, one in which there is additional revenue, not from raising rates, but through tax reform, which happily something the country needs anyway. does anybody believe this tax code that we have makes
